Opening this weekend is Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland. The film stars George Clooney as Frank, a disillusioned boy-genius who teams up with Casey (Britt Robertson), a curious and optimistic scientifically-inclined teenager, to discover the secrets of the enigmatic place known as “Tomorrowland”. The film also stars Hugh Laurie, Tim McGraw, Judy Greer, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key, and Thomas Robinson and was written by Damon Lindelof and Brad Bird, from a story by Lindelof & Bird & Jeff Jensen.
At the recent Los Angeles press day I landed an exclusive video interview with Britt Robertson, the young star of the film. She talked about what she learned from the experience of working with Clooney, her most memorable day from production, getting to play a powerful and intelligent female protagonist, the security surrounding the script, how the finished film compares to what she thought going in, what it was like working with Eddie Murphy on Cook, and a lot more.
